A wasted opportunity, indeed. But to be honest, it served a purpose, which was to let the main story to be unfolded.
A final duel between Simon and Dracula would have been in the way of the "shocking revelation" which we all already knew about anyway, but that doesn't take away the fact that it was a very moving and heartfelt story about a villain with some love still inside him.

Yeah I won't lie I was moved when Gabriel expressed such anguish and horror when he killed Trevor, only to realize he had murdered his only son. We see that him turning Trevor was an act of desperate love and not hate.
Again it brings to mind this whole premise feels unnecessary. Had Gabriel known who Trevor was the entire time he might have been persuaded to give up his vendetta, or at least take means to secure Trevor's safety. Although I must confess some confusion as to why the Daemon Lord could recognize Trevor's scent, but not Gabriel himself.

Maybe because Gabriel has still a great deal of humanity inside him. Everything is pointing to that angle from Gabriel's tale's perspective.
I think that he will ultimately redeem himself.

I can almost picture Cox saying: "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is the tale of the rise, fall and redemption of Dracul. Just like the way Star Wars did that with Darth Vader, you know...".
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

I suppose it's possible for him to find some kind of redemption in the far future, but not before getting dealt some kind of fatal blow.

He will defeat Satan again, possibly warm his cold hardened heart along the way, and Zobek will release him from eternal life. That would be his redemption. The Lord of Vampires defeating the Prince of Darkness and saving the world.

Just my guess.

And that would be a beautiful ending, bringing the LoS saga to a conclusion on a really high note.

On the other hand, I don't know if they really want to push for Satan as the final boss again.

It's likely as well, for Zobek, or more likely, Alucard, to be the real final fight.

Alucard has to use the sword forged from the Vampire Killer stake eventually right? I mean, he's got to be killed with it some point. And we know he would actually die from it.

Zobek needs a battle at some point. We got ripped off in LoS1 on that.

The final battle with Satan made sense in a Dracula-less world.
Supposedly, Dracula became the ultimate evil on Earth, so there's no point on remaking the same final battle for LoS 2.
It would feel redundant.

In my opinion, Dracula VS. Alucard is the final battle that would make sense.

Nah. Right at the start of the trailer, Zobek says that Satan will be back, and that's what will happen. Alucard will have his fight, but it won't be the last at all. :)

Well i don't doubt that Satan will be fought again, but somehow I dont think it will be the very last.

Or at least, it won't be the very same at all.

I think Zobek will be the final boss, as I'm sure his "deal" is just another deception, Gabriel will kill satan and then Zobek will acquire his powers or something, then we have to kill zobek. And for emotional punch, the last boss is Dracul going back in time to kill Gabriel Belmont at this prime so making the most epic ever final battle and then ereasing his timeline from the existence (remember that MS said that EVEN if THEY work on a next gen Castlevania themselves Dracula and cast would be different) so killing himself in the proccess and avoiding all in the process.

Then we'll learn that in reality God's will can't come into fruitition without a Dracul and then we see glimpses of Leon Belmont or Mathias or whatever, reconciling so the new series with the old one, and learning that, just like Alucard words said, there will always be a Dark lord.

Final battle: Gabula vs Trelucard. Trev dies impaled with the vampire killer sword and then Gabe takes himself out on it, too. They die together.

Anybody else glad to see the Kojima designs gone?
Simon looks like a man again!...and Scottish...and wearing something even more Japanese looking than when a Japanese person designed him...
Honestly it looks like Getsu Fuuma (or maybe Gesshi Hanafuuma) loaned Simon some demon hunting pants.
I'm slow poking like a mug here, I know, but OoE was blah and I just fell TOTALLY out of the CV loop after that.
